Tips to Win Sentry Tournament of Champions 2023

BetZillion has the best golf PGA Tour Tournament of Champions 2023 predictions and its expert picks. Know here who is more likely to approve the odds of winning the PGA tour and grant you free bet bonuses.

Bookmaker’s Favorite – Jon Rahm to Win @ 9.0 (8/1)

The Spanish golfer, Jon Rahm, is currently the bookmaker’s favorite, with his winning odds for the event being 9.0 (8/1). Rahmboo’s winning probability is higher because he won the DP World Tour Championship last November. Only a month earlier, he also won Spain’s golf championship, Acciona Open de España. So, he is currently at the top of his game and is a safe outright winner.

However, our experts also picked some other exceptional players who can win the event and give you huge bonuses on your bets. This betting preview is based on their recent form and performances.

Xander Schauffele to Win @ 11.0 (10/1)

Our first pick is the 2020 Summer Olympics gold medalist, Xander Schauffele, whose odds of winning Sentry Tournament golf 2023 are 11.0 (10/1). He was also the winner of the Sentry Tournament of Champions in 2019.

In April 2020, he won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with Patrick Cantlay. Then he won the Travelers Championship in June and Genesis Scottish Open in July, two weeks later. So, Schauffele is a strong prediction according to his recent wins.

Patrick Cantlay to Win @ 13.0 (12/1)

Our next pick is Patrick Cantlay, who is likely to win the event at 13.0 (12/1). He has won eight PGA tour events from 2017 to 2022 and is included in the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame of 2022.

Last year, Cantlay defended the 2022 BMW Championship title against Scott Stallings by one stroke, as he scored 14 shots below par. Earlier, Patrick and Xander were the winners of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. So, he has been performing above par in the past months and may give you easy money on your bets.

Viktor Hovland to Win @ 19.0 (18/1)

Our last pick, Viktor Hovland, has the PGA Tour Tournament of Champions 2023 odds at 19.0 (18/1). Viktor turned professional in 2019 and will be pretty young compared to other players in the field. But he already has seven professional victories and touched the no.3 ranking position.

Last year, he won the Dubai Desert Classic in January and successfully defended the Hero World Challenge title against Scottie Scheffler just a month ago. Undoubtedly, Hovland is in amazing form and is more likely to start this PGA Tour with a fantastic victory.

2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions Odds – Underdogs

Apart from the above picks, there are other great golfers with not-so-supporting odds. Here are the 2023 Sentry Tournament betting tips and previews of the underdogs who are fantastic with the club and can grant you huge bonuses by winning the event.

Sam Burns to Win @ 29.0 (28/1)

Sam Burns is a talented golfer and has his PGA tour betting odds for Sentry Tournament at 29.0 (28/1). Burns started his professional career in 2017 and didn’t perform so well initially. However, he won 4 PGA tour events in the last two years and is fired up to start this year with another victory.

Sahith Theegala to Win @ 34.0 (33/1)

Sahith Theegala started his career in 2020, but he mostly finished the events either in the top-10s or top-5s (against other highly experienced players). And just a couple of weeks ago, he won the QBE Shootout with Tom Hoge. His Sentry Tournament of Champions 2023 odds for winning are 34.0 (33/1).

Billy Horschel to Win @ 41.0 (40/1)

Billy Horschel’s probability of winning the Sentry Tournament is at 41.0 (40/1). Billy will be one of the most experienced players on the Plantation Course. The 36-years old golfer has seven PGA tour titles to his name, including the 2022’s Memorial Tournament. So if he wins the event, you can get lots of money with a quite underrated bet.

Two Main Players Will Miss the Sentry Tournament 2023

The number one golfer, Rory McIlroy, will miss the first event of this year (again). He played only one Sentry Tournament in 2019, finishing fourth. He didn’t participate in last year’s event either. The other player is the defending champ, Cameron Smith. He was banned from PGA Tour from September 2022 until April 2023 by choosing LIV Golf.

Our Final Predictions for Sentry Golf Tournament 2023

Our final Sentry Tournament 2023 golf predictions are:

  • Jon Rahm to Win at 9.0 (8/1)
  • Xander Schauffele to Win at 11.0 (10/1)
  • Sam Burns to Win at 29.0 (28/1)

Jon Rahm and Xander are more likely to win for us, as they are in their magnificent form. However, if you want to pick a young talent, go for Sam or Viktor. Otherwise, Sahith or Billy can give you huge bonuses. So, pick a legal bookmaker and win some extra cash for the holidays with our golf betting tips and predictions.
